i have started collecting (god help me) rollerballs and ballpoints of unusual designs and, unless they are twins of well known fountain pens, they tend to be much slimmer than my fountain pens so the cases i have (i am thinking of the zippered cases with elastic) have elastic loops that are too big and i would like to find a zippered case with smaller loops

 

any pointers appreciated ..

The Nib Section podcast recently did an episode on cases and discussed artists rolls designed for carrying pencils and brushes.  They specifically discussed one made by Peg and Awl https://pegandawlbui...=30190041628695

interesting and looks very well made, my only issue is the price vs storage capacity, it has 16 pockets and i will fill those up right away and need another

 

but you have given me a good idea which is to look at pen rolls in general (less fancy) which often have slimmer pockets and will hold smaller pens quite well by virtue of being rolled up .... thanks

Surely a filled (school) pencil case from a stationery ship might do.

 

You cana get a filled/empty one and empty the felt tips and pencils out - and presto.

good idea but the ones i see have the spacing a little too tight ... though i could use every other hole and get 18 in a 36 hole case

I think rollerballs dry out too fast.  Some rollerball pens will take their maker's ballpoint refills, though.

If you need a large case for a bunch, the cheapie portfolio cases you can get from china from PU leather and felt have nice, tight loops.
